Default heavy braid to flouro knot

I'm setting up 2 of my reels strictly for drift line fishing for snappas, i got the reels backed with 50 # mono, then I have 150 yds of 80 # braid on top of that, I'm wanting to topshot it all with 60# flouro, (bout 15 yds) what kinda knot would you use to put the braid and flouro together? need a smooth knot that can be reeled thru the eyes easily.

make a double line with the braid using either a bimini or a spider hitch and then a yucatan knot for the floro to braid connection. If double lines aren't your thing, just use an albright.

I like an albright knot, especially for the small guides on a trevala.

Click the above for test results and opinions. I agree that Uni-Uni is quickest and will try that (thanks's Scott) but for my big trolling and YFT jiging rigs I'll stick with the one in the link above. 100 pp to 80# floro.

I use the uni knot most of the time, but I like the albright for long/wind on leaders for jigging.

if you go up on the braid test and use hollow braid you can just put the floro inside the braid. works like chineese handcuffs. got to thread it thru for aseveral inchesbut it works well.superglue and your done.
